states will always, always, always meet its debt. we will never default on its debt. that was introduced in 2010. it didn't pass because harry reid and president obama didn't want it to pass. they wanted to raise the specter of a default to use. so, chuck, you and i could make news right now on national television, would you agree to support the full faith and credit act and take the possibility of a default off the table? >> i support the mcconnell proposal. let us raise the debt ceiling. no strings attached. and if the president can raise it as he should be able to and if congress wants to reject it 2/3. the mcconnell proposal is a good republican proposal. i hope you support it. that's the way to go. >> a bill that says regardless of what happens with the debt ceiling, the united states will never default on the debt, would you support that or not? >> i support the concept. i'd have to look at the bill. the best way to do that is the mcconnell act. >> we may have just made news. >>> last week, general colin powell was here worried about a dark vein of intolerance in republican quarter

states had a focus on is, especially during the economic crisis when president obama came in -- you had rising problems with north korea -- that is what chuck hagel is saying. we do not have a magic wand. we need to essentially figure out the limitations we have. you can act in certain places and then hopefully find successes in those. that is a realistic assessment of power that i think gary schmitt and others on the neo- conservative side think the role of the united states is. they become more responsive of contributors to the international system. when you have limited power, i think it makes someone like chuck hagel very skeptical about the ability of the united states to do that. definitely when chuck hagel and senator jack reed traveled with president obama, this is part of their discussion. host: what kind of relationship do these two men have? guest: they do get along personally. i think if you looked at the first term of the obama administration, president obama -- it was quite natural for him to pick then-senator clinton to be secretary of state and keep bob gates on as secre
, this is about whether or not it results in us having a democratic president. this is going on in the states right now. hey, beltway, wake up. >>> a helicopter crashes into a crane in london. >>> snow causing trouble for commuters today. >>> later today, president obama will offer the most xensz extensive proposals to curb gun rules. aenchts 150,000 kids could be stranded this morning and one world trade center is one step closer to reaching 1776 feet. good morning. we begin with breaking news in london today. black smoke was seen rising into the sky during the morning rush hour. a helicopter crashed into a construction crane and then crashed near the river thames. the chopper fell and burning wreckage was seen in the street. there are reports of at least two people killed. british police say there was nothing to suggest a terrorism link. we have a reporter headed to the scene of the crash and we're expected to bring you more on the story. >>> a big winter storm is working from the south to the northeast this morning and expected to be a travel nuisance for commuters. many in the south saw i
states to do that -- chuck hagel very skeptical of the ability of united states to do that. when he traveled with president obama, a think this was part of this discussion. host: what relationship does carry schmidt and senator hagel have? guest: if you look of a first term of the obama administration, there were doubts about his foreign policy and. it was natural for him to pick then-senator clinton to be secretary of state. i think in a second term, he is not running for reelection. he is more inclined to pick somebody he is comfortable with. the gun along in the senate, so presumably they will get along in it administrations -- they got along in the senate, so presumably they will get along in the administration. i think the fundamental reason, senator hagel, he and the president are in lock step. one of the things it should be done in the hearings for the nomination, and the things about american power and leadership, it is fine to talk about the limits of power. everyone should understand hard limits to power. i think that issue, that debate can be used fully put on the table w
's a signal from obama that he will pursue the course he pursued in the first term, to spend as much as he needs to establish the entitlement state and tax at a higher level to pay for it. jack lew is exactly the kind of liberal historically who has been his warrior on the front in negotiating on this. there is no indication that lew would go in any other direction, and it is clear to me that by this series of agreements obama has made, unlike added a first term more features people of independent stature, he has gone from a team of rivals to team of underlings. >> well, that is one nomination, but the nomination of former srepublican senator chuck hagel to head the department of defense has generated heat and light. zbigniew brzezinski, general john johns, brent scowcroft, as well as colin powell and former defense secretary bob gates. the senate has rejected only nine cabinet nominees to will chuck hagel be the 10th? >> i don't think so. i thought he would have an easier time that he has, but when all is said and done, there are lots of people from the bush administration, high-visibilit
states and it was a 41,000 vote gap in west virginia. more than 230,000 in kentucky. the gap got wider when john kerry lost in 2004. you see the pattern here. president obama improved on those numbers slightly in 2008, but still lost both states and his numbers fell off the table, if you will, this past november, the gap nearly doubled to 180,000 in west virginia and he lost kentucky by more than 400,000 votes. but last year, the war on coal had become a familiar theme on billboards, campaign signs and on tv. coal related donors poured more than $12 million into the campaign. 90% of it to republican, believe it or not, but to blame the president's agenda doesn't take in the bigger picture. coal production has dropped because demand is down and easily accessible coal has disappeared. low cost natural gas and fracking threatens to cut them even more. never the less, the politics of the war on coal seems to be solidly on the side of the republicans and senator rockefell rockefeller's retirement creates a prime opportunity for the west virginia gop. shelley cap toe has said she's running a
recommendation to president obama later this week. former secretary of state colin powell and senator joe manchin both weighing in today. >> i'm a gun owner. i'm a believer in the second amendment. i know the amendment rather thoroughly. i know the issue of the well-regulated militia. but at the same timeresponsibil constitution and bill of rights to protect our people and with respect to assault rifles i see no need for bush mav in the hands of an individual person who might be deranged. go out toy range and fire a bushmaster. >> you can't push law abiding gun owners away. they have to be at the table. and you need to find out what their preference of protecting that. and what i would say to all of my friends that are nra and gun owners, that there's no way that they're going to take your second amendment rights away. that won't happen. >> let's get right to nbc news white house correspondent peter alexander. with another good day to you, peter. the vice president's going to be reporting his findings to the president tuesday. do we have an idea what he might be recommending? >> well, he sort of
be the state of our environment causing health issues. good point. >> we talked about the diversity of president obama'ska cabinet, lala writes in, give me a frickin' break 47 percent of his people are women. how about you people -- how about you folks in the media an especially the left spend your time yelling and screaming about different issues >> bill: i remind you of a picture of president obama with 10 of his closest advisors. all 10 were men. one was black. >> this is "the bill press show." i can't imagine anything better. you're getting a ton of shrimp and it tastes really good!

[ music ] >> bill: good morning,
the right thing to do. since then, the prisoners at guantanamo have sadly been filled by the obama administration and the united states congress and the courts and the majority of the mainstream media and by the american people. that is sadly the truth. when you look at what that means -- what is it mean for the people in guantanamo? the most important fact that we need to be aware of on this day is that have of the prisoners in guantanamo have been cleared for release from that prison by a very sober and responsible group of government officials and lawyers and all the government departments and intelligence agencies in a report that was issued three years ago. as moe put it, these are not people who needed to be held because they pose a security risk or because they have ongoing intelligence on the united states and yet they have not been released. united states went to a very high level process of saying to these men that we don't want to will do any more and then did not release them. in about half of these cows, the men were previously cleared for release by a military review
are caught because the people in their state don't want limitations on certain weapons. the ar being one of them. that's why president obama is going to have a hard. it's impossible to get it through the republican controlled house. he will never do that and probably not going to get it through the democrat controlled senate. the question is is why does he even try? why is he wasting everybody's time? >> first of all, president obama, we have a crisis of security in america. people don't feel safe. it may be that no laws we pass are going to make americans feel safer. i will tell you this, the president has to act. furthermore congress should consider the proposals that he is extending. are they going to solve the problem in they may or may not. >> bill: you know as well as i do you came out of the house. the house is never going to pass any ban on assault rifles. they are not going to do it. >> bill, in 2000 -- no, it was 1994, the house voted 216 to 214 to ban assault westles. >> bill: that's 19 years ago and a whole different climate. >> you are right. this time there will be more dem
to state dinners that president bush hosts and you don't go to any that president obama hosts, i think right there the proof is in the pudding. let's go to washingt"washington pulitzer political analyst eugene robinson. eugene. >> i'm just imagining the next press conference the first one in the new term, somebody asks, mr. president, can you produce evidence you like a good party. item not sure this is a serious discussion. he's a friendly enough guy. >> they're making it a reflection of hiss leadersh lea abilities, to be a leader you have to pull people in, socialize with them and got to know them families. guess what. you can invite people over. if they don't come, is the responsibility on you? at that point, they've got the problem. >> he is president. i suppose he could dispatch secret service to haul them in. short of that, i don't know what he can do to make people come over. some people are more touchy feely than other people. that doesn't change the fact we live in a much more ideological age, where people just kind of turn their backs on each other ideologically in terms of p
/7, you need an ally. hello? ally bank. your money needs an ally. >>> president obama's inaugural parade will feature eight floats including a hawaii float to honor his birthplace, an illinois float to honor the first lady's home state and a kenyan float just to mess with republicans. why not? it's a parade. everyone loves a parade. >>> back to "hardball." bill clinton answers a question about hillary clinton's health and her plans for the future and thoughts about what lies ahead for their relationship. >> she's always been very, very healthy. and she has very low blood pressure, very low standing heart beat. i tell her she's still got time to have three more husbands after me. whenever i am stubborn about something in her constant quest at my self-improvement, she refers to me as her first husband. because i told her once she was going to live to be 120 and have time for plenty more. >> critics laughed. they can laugh, but it works. not just big bill's pattern there but the whole thing. the whole clinton thing. it works. just think about it. the secretary of state also scored an endors
faith and credit of the united states of america is not at bargaining chip. >> on tuesday following a meeting that took place in the west wing, president obama surmounted a huge hurdle in the nomination of chuck hagel to be defense secretary when influential new york senator chuck schumer gave it his blessing. yesterday the president forcefully and emotionally laid out his proposals to curb gun violence and challenged americans to confront the representatives and stand up to the nra. let's listen. >> ask them what's more important, doing whatever it takes to get an "a" grade from the gun lobby that funds their campaigns or giving parents some peace of mind when they drop their child off for first grade. >> joining me is former rnc chair and msnbc contributor michael steele and democratic strategist bob shrum. shrummy, i have to start with you. it sounds like you got into the president's ear. i know you haven't, that i know of, but he's starting to charge this campaign for the second term the way i think you like to run campaigns. go to the essential issues, fight them, get tough aga
hagel very skeptical of the ability of the united states to do that. that is a legitimate debate. but definitely when chuck hagel and jack reed traveled with president obama when he was running for office, i think this was part of their discussion. host: what kind of relationship do these two men have, the president and senator chuck hagel? guest: they do get along personally. if you look at the first term of the obama administration, president obama was elected, there were doubts about his national security experience. it was quite natural for him to pick then senator clinton to be secretary of state and keep bob gates on as secretary of defense. i think he thinks in the second term, he is not running for reelection. he has had experience, so he is much more inclined to pick somebody who is comfortable with, which is senator chuck hagel and senator john kerry. they got along in the senate, so presumably there will get along in the administration. i would add that i do think that one has to ask why, for example, the president is willing to make a flight out of the nomination? i d
, the secretaries of state and the secretary of defense. and mr. obama has also nominated a new treasury secretary. that is jack lew who is currently the white house chief of staff. the president nominated jack lew to be treasury secretary last week. and here comes the president of the united states. >> please, have a seat, everybody. good morning. i thought it might make sense to take some questions this week as my first term comes to an end. it's been a busy and productive four years, and i expect the same for the next four years. i intend to carry out the agenda that i campaigned on, an agenda for new jobs, new opportunity and new security for the middle class. now, right now our economy is growing and our businesses are creating new jobs so we are poised for a good year. if we make smart decisions and sound investments and as long as washington politics don't get in the way of america's progress. as i said on the campaign, one component to growing our economy and broadening opportunity for the middle class is shrinking our deficits in a balanced and responsible way. and for n
